Stevenson encourages coastal communities to apply for €107 million funding

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire and Buchan Coast, is encouraging Scottish fishing communities to apply for their share of €107million (£77million) funding.

This scheme comes from the European Structural and Investment Fund, administered by the European Commission and aims to promote “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth across the continent.”

Mr Stevenson commented:

“Fishing is an important part of our Scottish coastal communities and I encourage people in my constituency to apply for their share of this funding

At the moment Scotland isn’t getting its fair share of the European Fisheries Fund (EMFF) so I encourage all Scottish fishing communities to apply and make use of the benefits of this funding, it is important for us to get the best deal we can for Scottish fishermen.”

The programme will open to applications on 18 January and will run until 2020.
